David Madalinski has been involved with the communications industry for over 30 years. After graduating with a Creative Writing magna cum laude degree from Bowling Green State University in 1980, he became a technical writer and later lead-staff editor for a team of 20 writers at Diebold Electronics Inc., the banking equipment manufacturer in North Canton, OH.
Between 1986-1988, he completed a Master of Science in Communication at Northwestern (with honors) and was promoted to Senior Technical Writer at Bell Labs shortly afterwards. Subsequently, David pursued Project Management positions and served in that capacity at AT&T/Lucent Technologies until 2001 while also completing a Project Management Certification program from George Washington University.
In 2000, AT&T divested itself of Bell Labs and David accepted an early retirement position and has served in a consulting capacity since.
As a consultant, David has worked with the McDonald’s Corporation, Sears, Roebuck and Company, and other clients on training and documentation-related projects in the Chicago-land area over the past 10 years. Additionally, from 2002 until present, David has served as an adjunct professor teaching Public Speaking and Small Group Communication courses periodically at various Chicago land educational institutions: College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove, Benedictine University in Lisle, Harper College in Palatine, and Triton College in River Grove.
Beginning in January 2005, David joined Loyola University and the SCPS program where he has taught Communication Processes (COM 175) and Communication and New Media (COM 200) ever since.
David still resides in Naperville with his wife Leslie and golden retriever Isabella. His two grown daughters, Sarah and Mikaela, live in Iowa City, Iowa, and Boulder, Colorado, respectively.
